Tell her “Be bold”
Tell her “Be brilliant”
Make sure she knows
Her body must be willing

Tell her “Be whole”
Show her resilience
Tell her she’s so
Much bigger than pretty

So when the dragons come
She knows
How to defeat them

(One blow, they all fall down)

And when the madness comes,
She knows
Not to believe them

(One blow they all fall down)

Say it just so
The words will allow her
And though it hurts so
No one will take her power
And her world may fall
And crumble all around her
But she’s 10 feet tall
It will never even matter

And when the dragons come
She'll know
How to defeat them

(One blow, they all fall down)

And when the madness comes
She'll know
Not to believe them

(One blow, they all fall down
One blow, they all fall down)
